Chinese Medicine places a high importance on what it termed ‘the art of nurturing the young’. Texts written as long as 1500 years ago contain many pearls of wisdom about childhood and children’s health. It is astounding that so many of them remain relevant today and are of value even when considering 21st century children in the western world.
Much of what is contained in these pages are ‘general principles’ that may be useful to consider when making decisions about what is best for your child. However, if your child suffers from a health condition, he or she may need more specific advice. In this case, it is therefore important to consult an appropriately qualified healthcare professional.
